COMMENTS FROM THE PASTOR:
The Choir will be presenting our Christmas Cantata the 16th for our morning worship hour. I hope you will be in prayer for our choir and plan on attending this special time of Christmas worship.
Thank you to all who helped unload the truck that was filled with backpacks for the elementary schools in Johnson County this past Tuesday. The Georgia Baptists have been so gracious in their efforts to minister to our community. May The Lord richly bless them.
I hope you will make a special effort to attend Sunday School this coming Sunday. You will be blessed and you will be a blessing to others.
I John 3:9a, “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin.”
I remember reading this verse just after becoming a Christian and thinking, boy am I in trouble. I don’t know about you, but I do know about me and the tendency to sin is ever present even after coming to the Lord for salvation. Does this mean that I have to be perfect and never again make a mistake? If being sinless is the only way to truly be saved I’m hurting. Did you know that being sinless is the only way to be like Christ? Being sinless is not a demand on me it is a demand on Christ. Being a Christian is Christ who is sinless in me, and the more I abide in Him, I find that I sin less. Christians should not practice a sinful lifestyle. If you are living in blatant sin and are not being convicted by the Holy Spirit, you are lost in your sin and you need Salvation.
I John 2:3, “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”
In Christ, Ricky
